Love those stars, Ellen.  I can see they are strip blocks.  You'll have to show me how you cut them up.

Suze, welcome back. Sounds like your vision is much improved and you can enjoy quilting again

Love your scrappy string stars. 

Yup she cried when she saw the label I made from her hubby's request.

I think this looks like the best one coming up soon.  DH and I are both too old to do quilt shows any more but any quilt show in Wooster (near Amish country) would be a good one.

Judy, thank you for the information on the show in Wooster. I will look into it.

Just curious, what are you quilting now? 

Do any of the ladies on this forum make quilts for charity? I'd enjoy connecting with them.

I'm making small things now. Made a wall hanging for a good friend and surprised her by mailing it off to her. Now I'm tackling a place mat set with lots of little pieces. All quilting will be done on my Singer 201-2 because my back doesn't allow me to stand at my longarm any more.

I found a cute pattern by Karen Griska at Etsy.com where she sells oodles of downloadable scrappy quilt patterns for $5 each. I'll take her scrappy quilt ideas and use them to make placemats instead of big quilts. The one I will work on this week is called "Trumpet Vine."   I say "this week" casually because it will take me a week to cut up and organize all of the little pieces and then a few more weeks to sew them all together.  LOL  But that's what quilters do, isn't it?

Slice, dice and reattach ...

ETA:  Here's my current project:

Judy, that pattern is wonderful. I will check out her Etsy page. Thank you again.

Enjoy our beautiful weather today.
